“This seems like such an odd question. Of course we have fun together, that’s hardly a unique characteristic of a romantic relationship. I think pretty much everyone I know who is happy in thier relationship would say they have fun together. “
I agree. I don’t think there are that many happy couples who are serious all the time and who rarely have fun together. You’re just catching people who are not laughing at that exact moment. Who’s to say that they are “serious” and don’t have fun the way you and your husband do? Maybe they have even more fun. Who knows. And I’ll bet there are times when another couple could look at you and think, “hmmm, they look really bored. I wonder if they are as in love as we are? Probably not.”

Agreed. Something that contributes to a couple’s overall level of happiness is whether they are willing to have fun at the same time.
To answer OP’s question, we’re definitely not goofy or playful most of the time, especially when we’re not alone. Most of our friends and peers are also on the more serious side.

Sometimes I wonder if other people hate humans as much we do . . . And yes, it makes us very happy together. The happiest. ^_^

When I was in university, there was this couple that would always sit on each other’s laps and giggle in each other’s faces and kiss each other mid-bite of sandwich or while chewing food.
OP, are you this couple? I feel like you are.

Yes!! That’s one of the most important parts of our relationship, just always being able to laugh and enjoy each other’s company no matter what. I think that’s essential and in most healthy relationships.

I like to think it takes a lot of love and fun to make a relationship successful 🙂 My fiance and I have the time of our lives when we are together! He is so caring and smart and we love to tease each other constantly and chase each other around the house. I love him so much – he is my whole world <3

Do we two have fun together, yes!
Do we goof off together, not so much.
We’re probably one of the more serious-looking couples that you mentioned. I’m an introvert in an extrovert’s job, so I need a lot of quiet time to recharge. My love language is quality time, and some of my favorite conversations with my husband has actually been our serious discussions about our plans for life or even work stuff since we are in the same field and we nerdgasm over work-related things sometimes.

The other night we couldn’t get to bed because we were laughing so hard at the dumbest stuff. He was sining the Drake song but instead of kiki, or whatever used my nickname to be like “[Nickname] do you love me?” and I sang back “I only love my bed and my mom, I’m sorry” and we started cracking up!! Everytime we would start to calm down one of us would let out a giggle and start all over again. We laid in bed in the dark but laughing like fools for 20 minutes.

I think we are a serious couple too. We don’t goof around like that, but we are happy. It’s not really our personalities to be goofy but it’s not like we are boring…? Maybe we are boring? I don’t know. I love our life.

From other people’s perspective we might seem a lot more serious, especially my FH who is very shy and reserved in front of others. I think even his own family wouldn’t believe how silly, goofy, loud, cutsie and funny he can be.
There is no one else in the world I have more fun with, going anywhere with him is more fun then going with anyone else. Even if we are just sitting around doing nothing we laugh together. We have a vey similar sense of humor and I know we both bring each other joy in every day life in little ways. The frequency with which we make each other smile is a constant reminder that I have met my soul mate.

We aren’t a goofy couple. I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable blowing raspberries on my partner- it seems infantalizing to me (and likely would to him too)-and we won’t tickle fight because I’d probably accidentally kick him in the balls; I’m insanely ticklish and also bruise easily. That doesn’t mean we aren’t just as happy as every other happy couple. We both have a sarcastic, dry sense of humor. The man makes me laugh like a crazy person (often at wildly inappropriate times) and makes me unbelievably happy. Goofy couples are fine, but so are more “serious” ones.
